Deals on drugs

To the Journal editor:

Veterans, are you presently getting your prescription drugs from the Veterans Administration at a cost to you of $9 per month or $27 for a three-month supply?

Do you know that you can purchase from local pharmacies many of the same prescriptions you are getting from the VA at a lower cost to you and shipped free?

I am buying a well-known prescription for my heart at a cost of $10 for a three-month supply, a savings of $17. Give it a try it may save you some money.

Meanwhile, contact your local congressman and ask him why the VA is charging us vets more for a prescription than we can purchase locally.
